allen directly? >> not that i'm aware of no. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort of a follow-up to the last question, is this an unwelcome distraction at the time when he was just reelected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of fiscal cliff and in terms of his cabinet? >> i certainly wouldn't call it welcome. obviously as i said to ben that the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise, and he is very appreciative of general petraeus' remarkable service to his country, but the president is focused on the agenda that he believes is important for this country, that he has to carry out, working with lawmakers here in washington. and that includes as you know his number one priority, which is jobs and economic growth. and he is engage nothing meetings this week on those issues, on the issues of the approach we need to take to assure we have the right economic policy, the right fiscal policy to help the economy grow and help it to continue to grow jobs. he is also continuously focused on his foreign policy a
really around the world as secretary of state hillary clinton and defense secretary leon panetta both say our nato's allies aren't worried this investigation will hurt our mission in afghanistan in any way. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit
viqueira at the white house, there's been speculation that leon panetta was expected to be replaced at defense. how much does this now complicate matters for the president? >> a good question. i think that specktation continues. obviously, we're talking about a lot of different positions if you want to talk about cabinet agencies in the second term. obviously secretary of state clinton this, some sitting senators who have been known to harbor some ambitions for some of these cabinet positions, where they end up, a big parlor game there. i think just at first blush they're going to take their time with the cia posting. i don't know if it directly affects what leon panetta is going to do. obviously, leon panetta has a lot of institutional knowledge hague not only served at the white house and in congress but as the dci, director of central intelligence before moving over to the defense department. so all of that very much up in the air. i would imagine that they're sort of going to stand pat where they are with by all accounts a very competent individual, the deputy director stepping
it began. secretary panetta did not give orders for backup until 5 hours later. read more about this and the coverage of the story on fox news dot-com. she has been breaking news all along. will the new revelations help congress figure out who is to blame for the attack and the lack of response? joining us, two members of the house oversight committee. gentlemen, welcome to you both. >> thank you. good to be here. >> hanks. >> jamie: congressman kucinich, do you have any concerns about the fact that congress didn't know more about what was going on -- with respect to general petraeus, the fbi investigating the cia -- do you have any concerns about how that played out and that you didn't know more about it? >> well, frankly, there is a matter here between general petraeus and his wife. and the national security imp cages. i am more concerned about what happened in lib libya and what happened when petraeus was in charm of libya -- we have four people who died. >> absolutely. four dead americans. do you worry about his inability and the fact he won't show up at the hearings, and he
received reaction from the secretary of defense leon panetta about general petraeus resignation. what can you tell us about that? >> he was en route to reporters and said it was a sad situation to have a established career end in this manner. my heart obviously goes out to hip and his family. but i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you are director of the c.i.a. with all the channels that face you in that position. >> he was then asked as a former member of congress how he felt about congress not being informed about the f.b.i. investigation. to which he said, "that is another issue i think we ought to look at, because as a former director of the c.i.a., working closely with the intelligence committees you know i believe there is a responsibility to make sure that the intelligence committee are informed of issues that could effect the security of those intelligence operations. >> thank you. in a city where keeping secrets is next to impossible many national leaders had no idea of the petraeus affair until shortly before you heard about it. >> catherine herridge
. another car bomb exploded in a village market south of baghdad. >>> defense secretary leon panetta is offering support to the top u.s. commander in baghdad even as he's under investigation for e-mails he received. his nomination to head european command is on hold pending the investigation. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job at isap in leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence to lead our forces and to continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what the facts are. and we will. >> allen is accused of having questionable communications with jill kelley, a social liaison to a tampa air force base. it was kelly who reportedly received threatening e-mails from paula broadwell who was reportedly having an affair with david petraeus, which led to his resignation. the testimony regarding the deadly bombing attack on the embassy in benghazi, libya, will go on withouteneral petraeus. senator dianne feinstein says she still ex
at this moment? bill: the last man to head the cia was leon panetta. petraeus took over from him when he took the job as defense secretary. now panetta was asked about the situation on his way overseas late last night. roll this. >> first, obviously it was a, it was a very sad situation to you know, have a distinguished career like that end in this manner, and my heart obviously goes out to him and to his family but i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all of the challenges that face you in that position that, you know, that personal integrity comes first and foremost. bill: so secretary panetta was also asked by reporters if the fbi should have alerted key members of congress about the investigation sooner? panetta saying that is something that should be looked at. martha: well the fbi is now preparing a timeline of its investigation to respond to lawmakers who think that they were told too late. this is it what we know so far according to a senior member of the obama administration. on wednesday the director of national intelligence
of every second term. hillary clinton is going someplace else, leon panetta moving on, treasury secretary, timothy geithner, i think 55 democrats, two independents, going with the democratic caucus. is that enough to make sure susan rice is nominated by the president, u.n. ambassador to be secretary of state, is that enough to make sure she's confirmed. >> i would be surprised if he nominated susan rice. although she probably would be confirmed, hearings would be a misery, a place where we would see again and again that she was the mouthpiece for a false story about what happened in benghazi. does the administration want to be held hostage to susan rice's overstatements of the case on tv multiple, multiple times. >> i don't know if you have inside information, everything i hear the president wants her to be the next secretary of state. >> she would be a strong nominee, excellent for this job. and if republicans want to go down the road of benghazi making it a political issue, we saw it play out in the campaign, not much success for them, it would be a strategic error to play politics with
secretary of defense leon panetta who previously served as director of the cia weighed in about general david petraeus' sudden resignation. during a flight to australia, reporters asked if general petraeus could be prosecuted if it's determined he was having an affair while on active duty in the military. >> you know, i don't know. i don't know the answer to that. i guess i'm -- i'm reading the papers like you are to determine just, you know, what the committee finds out, what the ultimate investigation determines on that issue. we, you know, we obviously are going to, you know, watch this closely to determine just exactly, you know, when that took place. >> panetta also appeared to side with lawmakers who say the fbi should've informed them about the investigation sooner. >> that's another issue i think we ought to look at. you know, as a former director of the cia and having worked very closely with the intelligence committee, you know, i believe that there is a responsibility to make sure that the intelligence committees are informed of issues that could affect, you know, the securit
know this. that we're likely to call leon panetta and general hamm and others in the armed services committee and i believe that the foreign relations committee would want to hear from secretary clinton and all those who are responsible for consulate security. the problem is that the thee committees will not be able to hear what the other groups are saying. i'd like to ask general petraeus t some questions and i'm sure there are people on the intel committee that would like to hear what the department of defense would like to say about their handling of the attack and why were there so many requests for additional security denied and the august 15th cable back to washington where chris stevens is telling secretary clinton, we've identified ten al-qaeda militia groups in benghazi. two of the ten we suspect were involved in the attack and close to the final paragraph, if there is a coordinated attack against the consulate, we cannot defend it. so four americans are dead. first ambassador is killed. i think this is a symptom of a greater problem in the mideast, quite frankly. for those
as a spontaneous, the benghazi killings as a spontaneous reaction. the department of defense leon panetta was saying it was terrorism. the very same -- >> bob: petraeus never said -- he didn't change his story. he never said it wasn't a terrorist attack. he did not. >> eric: said it was reaction to the movie. >> dana: this would be a fun experiment. if you found somebody living under a rock or on mars or listening to the news and said i want you to sift through the stories, see the conclusion. it's what is our government doing to protect the diplomatic personnel. we have a responseability to do that. >> greg: a journalist would be good at doing that. this is a blown opportunity for journalist to become the next -- >> bob: four days after it took place. >> dana: they are the ones who said -- what they should have done and they didn't is they created the problem. not us. >> bob: talk about the conflicting information. it says in here on the briefing, there was strong ties to al-qaeda. not been one shred of evidence. >> dana: there is. >> bob: no, by the name al-qaeda. >> eric: president oba
and before that as centcom commander. he brought a different style to the cia than leon panetta. he was hard at work, bringing enormous strategic sense to understanding dangerous parts of the world. the cia is a big, positive contributor to the intelligence community which operates a lot better since we reformed it in 2004 and created a joint command across 16 agencies. the cia is indispensable in the effort to prevent terror attacks on our country. >> you once said, quoting you, i live and breathe security 24/7, if they come and ask you to be director of the cia, you will have that opportunity to live and breathe security 24/7. >> i live and breathe at the wilson center, and as the external board if his successor keeps me on. i think it is a critical time for our country. we need to talk about organizing the opposition in syria which if it happens will be a great contribution of secretary of state hillary clinton. >> we will have opportunities to talk about syria and other issues down the road. thanks for coming in. >>> did the fbi end up investigating something that amounted to nothing? up

i always assumed wanted to be secretary of state could be the next secretary of defense leon panetta has made it clear he's ready to move on and go back to california after all these years in washington, former cia director, now the secretary of defense. i don't know how long that will last. but if kerry is nominated to be the secretary of defense, that does leave hillary clinton's job at the state department open. and susan rice was always -- at least i always believed she was the front-runner until those controversial comments she made about the benghazi killing of the u.s. ambassador and three other americans on those five sunday talk shows. and the republicans really have been going after her. and if the president stands firm and nominates her to be the next secretary of state, it will be a bruising confirmation hearing, there's no doubt about that. my p sense is, he probably wants her to be the secretary of state, but we'll see if -- how that confirmation process will go forward. the democrats do have the majority in the senate. i think it's going to be 55 if you bring in both o

on replacing the cia director. he's got to probably replace hillary clinton at state. leon panetta at defense. as he starts to move pieces around, maybe as attorney general, the president demands two things when you think about these big appointments. diversity and excellence. and now, replacing his cia director is going to have to be part of that mix, to get a national security seem that can work really well together, general petraeus had a mixed reputation on that score. some people in the pentagon, in the intelligence community, resented him a little bit. he's a superstar. and superstars in any high pressure field are going to have some people questioning are they team players? there was some of that. but he did perform at a very high level. one of the most excellent people in his profession in the last 100 years. they need to find somebody to replace him. >> is there a political fallout from this? whether it's for the president, or for any others in washington? >> i think the most likely political fallout could relate to benghazi. there's still this question, one of the things that goes o
the president, the vice president and leon panetta were in the white house -- >> rick: they get a feed for that stuff directly into the white house. >> anyone who had access could get this up on a computer. >> gregg: state department, pentagon, white house, c.i.a. they were all likely monitoring the attack. >> everybody could watch it. the question is, who in washington wasn't watching it? on my show tonight, we're going to have another time line because now there is just a new time line released where the c.i.a. is at odds with the time line that was released by the department of defense. this is craziness. we can't get to the truth of it. and every day, every week, there is another obstruction. >> gregg: judge jeanine, thank you very much. we'll be right back [ forsythe ] we don't just come up here for the view up in alaska. it's the cleanest, clearest water. we fd the best, sweetest crab for red lobster that we can find.

lilg healthing hillary rodham clinton and leon panetta both expected to depart. likewise, the president might have to find replacement for treasury secretary timothy geithner and attorney general eric holder if they decide that they, too, would like to leave. toipt bring in our white house correspondent briana keiller to talk about just more on the president's plate here. how does this add to what he needs to get done starting in the next year? >> it really adds to it. i mean, you've got this issue, obviously, that comes after any re-election. the turnover of the cabinet, suzanne, but just think of the big plate that this is being added to. first offer, the fiscal cliff. that is obviously the biggest issue that president obama has to deal with. you're looking at tax cuts that expire at the very end of december, and then those spending cuts that are set to kick in on january 2nd. as he works, obviously, figuring out the new faces on his cabinet. he has his anything raugs on january 20th, and february is a big month as well. he needs to summit a budget at the beginning of the month. it's
clinton, leon panetta, maybe his attorney general. the president demands two things, diversity and excellence. and now, replacing his cia director will be part of that mix. some people in the pentagon, in the intelligence committee resented him a bit. he was a super star, he performed at a very high level. one of the most excellent people in his profession. they need to find somebody to replace him that's equally as excellent. >> is there a political fallout for the president or any others? washington? >> i think it could relate to benghazi. one of the things that goes on, when there is a national security scandal or crisis, is there is tensions between people in the intelligence world, political people at the white house, and the suspicion for a lot of people is that things were being covered up, not fully discussed. no doubt the cia is at the center of that. two of the people that tragically died were part of the cia, so there could be some controversial and from a point of view, why did we get it back as late as we did, his resignation, as shocking as it is, teases some of t
